As a Brit who spends his days surrounded by Americans and his nights drinking Newcastle Brown Ale, I’m biased. But while there are times to highlight the power¬†of Big Alcohol and the health impact of drinking, there are also times to say, That’s a bloody good commercial.

Stephen Merchant, co-writer of The (original) Office and co-star of Extras, eloquently explains how much better America’s legal system, food and swearing options would be had Britain won the American Revolutionary War. Bravo! (Disclaimer: I am not sponsored by Newcastle Brown Ale, though I heartily wish I were.)
